Ruger® American Rifle 

This trigger was purchased for my wife. She has a Ruger® American Rifle in .223. This trigger is easy to install and has performed flawlessly. My wife loves how crisp and consistent this trigger is. Thank you for the fast shipping and awesome product.

Ruger® American Trigger 

Excellent Trigger pull with absolutely no creep!!! Had Timney set it at 1.5 Lbs and that’s exactly what two different gauges said! Would encourage any one wit a Ruger ® American to purchase their Trigger. Very easy to install and they perform exactly as advertised! Keep up the good work!!!

What Is Trigger Pull weight?

Pull weight is the amount of pressure, in ounces or pounds, required to fire the trigger. Or in other words, how hard you have to squeeze the trigger to shoot your rifle. Timney Trigger experts at our Phoenix, Arizona plant hand-test every trigger in its intended action and then set the pull weight at our factory standard, 3 lbs.

If you prefer a different pull weight you simply select it from the drop down above and your Timney Trigger will be customized to your preference.
The #1 reason to replace your factory trigger with a Timney is accuracy. A lighter, crisper, more consistent trigger pull will make you more accurate with your firearm.

Below is a guide for pull weight selection:

2-2.5 pounds
Light trigger pull weights are great for people shooting lighter weight rifles as they can help keep you on target during the shot. Also common weights for target shooting from a bench.

3-3.5 pounds
By far the most common trigger pull weights -this is great for virtually all applications including target shooting, hunting and 3-gun competitions.

4.0 pounds+
Heavy trigger pull weights are good for cold weather hunting or applications where you may be shooting with gloves on.

This trigger works with these rifles:

  • Ruger® American All-Weather Model
  • Ruger® American Compact
  • Ruger® American Compact All-Weather
  • Ruger® American Crossfire II with Vortex Scope
  • Ruger® American Magnum
  • Ruger® American Predator
  • Ruger® American Ranch
